Soluble vs Insoluble: Fiber to Go
Healthy smoothies with fiber can jump-start your digestion and weight loss program. Are there different kinds of fiber? Yes, most definitely. While both soluble and insoluble fiber are important, there’s a slight difference between the two. Ready-to-go smoothie mixes in Berry, Chocolate, and Original have so many benefits as they’re packed with chia, flax, and psyllium in just a few spoonfuls. Consider organic fiber blends for digestion, weight loss, and more.
Soluble fiber dissolves and creates a gel that can help improve digestion and let’s say, move things along. If you’ve ever added it to your smoothies, you’ll know that it can thicken it up pretty quickly. Soluble fiber has the same effect once it’s in your body, helping to bulk up everything else you’ve consumed. Soluble fiber is also metabolized by the good bacteria in your gut, acting as a PREbiotic.
On the other hand, insoluble fiber attracts water into your stool, helping to soften it up and making it easier to pass. This type of fiber helps to promote healthy bowel movements and regularity. You’ll find insoluble fiber in nuts, beans, potatoes, and even cauliflower.
Which one’s best? Both!
It’s important to get enough soluble and insoluble fiber in your diet in case of having symptoms of lack of fiber since they can work together to keep you feeling full, and promote regularity and a healthy digestive tract all while helping to reduce blood sugar and cholesterol levels. Make sure to choose an organic fiber product, too.

Smoothies that Move You
Adding fiber to your smoothie can help turn it from a snack into a meal. Without it, you’ll likely find yourself feeling hungry again before it’s actually time for your next meal. We know what you’re about to say – “fruit has fiber!” and you’re right, fruit does contain fiber, however, the insoluble fiber found in fruit can often be destroyed when the fruits are blended. Therefore, in addition to your fruit, we recommend also adding organic fiber to your smoothies.
A great way to ensure that you’re getting the most out of the fruit in your smoothie is by pairing it with fiber. Fiber helps to slow down the absorption of sugar meaning you won’t experience the same sugar crash you would without it.
